This collection brings together two of Twin Science’s most popular STEM kits, including both the Robotic Art Kit and the Coding Kit. In the Robotic Art collection, kids 5 to 8 get to cross their natural creativity with tech, using a power source, a fan, and other mechanical pieces with materials like paints and markets to create their own cool spin art and other projects. Or they can use the pieces to build stuff like a confetti machine or their own mini vacuum cleaner.
Meanwhile, the Coding Kit for kids ages 9 to 12 offers a fun, yet educational introduction to basic computer programming. Using these various projects, children can write code that controls a robot that they build, all out of electronic building blocks and craft materials.
